I'm just a LOVE machine....

Pffffft!! I just couldn't resist making that sentiment for this image!! LOL!! This is "Molly Watt" from Stamping Bella. Isn't she CUTE?? I just LOVE those springs for her hair!! I even colored them so they resemble RUST! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!

Ok now, before I get to the details of the card I wanted to let you hens in on my news!! Linda from the Catered Crop has asked me to be one of her challenge designers!! Woo-hoo!! If you've never been to Linda's blog, well you HAVE TO GO!! Seriously, she has the most AMAZING blog EVER!! Now not only does she have a really cool blog, but she has a new challenge called "Follow the Recipe". The challenge couldn't be simpler either, just use ANY of the recipe ingredients from the winner of last week's challenge. Yup, that's it, use ANY ingredient!! And GUESS WHO was last week's winner? MEEEEEE!! Yippee - skippeee!!

Ok-ok, soooooo today's card is my take on the new Follow The Recipe challenge - FTR #4 and here are the ingredients I used from that recipe:
  • Canson Mango Fanboy CS
  • Copics
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Stitched Ribbon tied in a Bubbly Bow
  • Sponging with Chalk Ink
  • Sewing Machine
  • Border Punch
  • Oval Die
  • Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
Directions: I stamped Molly onto some Canson Manga Fanboy CS and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out with my Nestabilities and sponged some chalk ink around the edges. I matted her on some SU Basic Black CS and stitched around the edges. I adhered her to this great DP from Cosmo Cricket's Joy Ride collection and added some twine and a Bubbly Bow to finish!! Don'tcha just LOVEEEE Molly??? Me tooooo!

Now, not only can you play along in Linda's new challenge (which has PRIZES by the way!) but if you use Kraft CS on your card, you can also enter your card in my That's Krafty Thursday challenge too! Woo-hoo!! Did you see how many participants we already have in this week's TKT #46 challenge?? Now that's what I'm squawkin' about!! You hens ROCK!!

Before I leave you today, I have to tell you what I did this weekend. My DH and I installed a flat screen TV in the spare bedroom. Ummm, that may not sound like a big deal but I wanted it mounted on the wall and NO WIRES showing! Ok, you get the picture now right? Yup, that meant we had to drop cable and electric down the wall and install new outlets for each behind the set. Welllllll, I bet you'll never guess who had to CRAWL IN THE ATTIC?? Uh-huh, yours truly!!! Now have I ever mentioned to you hens that I'm CLAUSTROPHOBIC?? And of course this was the upstairs attic so there's not much of a pitch to that roof, in other words, CRAMPED BIG TIME!!

Here's how the conversation went:
Me - "You're goin' up right?"
DH - "No, you said you were!"
Me - "NO I DIDN'T!!!"
Me - "NO!!! I DIDN'T!!"
DH - "Well I'm too BIG, YOU have to go!"
DH - "Well I'm too BIG!!!"

Sooooo, I DID and I'm still here so I didn't have a heart attack but it took nearly two hours before my heart began beating normal again!! Actually, my DH was real good, he never left the attic entry and kept talking to me the whole time telling me what I needed to do and I had it done in less than a half an hour. Not bad but I've been thinking about this..... I think this is a really good reason to put on about 50lbs whatcha think? Then I can say, "I'm TOO BIG!!!!" too! LOL!!!

Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today! I hope you hens have a MAGNIFICENT Monday! {{{hen hugs}}}
